Installing the hard drives are a little awkward, but that's to be expected in this tiny thing. Another plus I just found out that it fits great in one of the cubbies of this ikea Expedit shelf! V21 Cube Verified Purchase. Great Matx Cube case. Not the smallest matx case out there. Here's why I 'd do it again: I hate having my gfx cards hanging on for dear life.
PS - wires all hidden below the tray. Despite other reviews - you can wire this so you can ONLY see the headers at the mobo. Quiet - and pushes enough air it could be all you use. Of course it wont be Bought mine on ebay - Tt shipping direct was really high. Seem's like this is priced as a loss leader. Aren't you sick of over 10 years of predominately black PC cases? In my experience, aluminum cases are not as quiet not as sound-proof and the panels scratch easily.
PSU goes on the bottom level, motherboard sits on a tray above. This means you can fit a long PSU if need be. The case has a window, so with the motherboard tray being higher, you can see your components better through the top window if that's your thing. This means you can swap around which side you want the window displayed on. You can also remove the bottom panel if you need to access the bottom of your motherboard as well.
Because the layout of the case has the PSU on bottom and motherboard on top, the fan can cool both levels. I find this to be a bonus particularly with the new m. So the fan will help keep your m. And for the record, I find the front fan very quiet. I am not distracted by it at all. But you really only need to add these if you're overclocking. I use the Noctua NH-L9x65 low profile cooler, and there's plenty of space. I even replaced the slimline fan on the cooler with a regular sized 92mm fan.
I have a GTX in there with no problems. I found the inside to be mostly a pleasure to work with, since you've got a bit of room to move. This is likely due to the PSU being on the lower level, which makes the top much cleaner and roomier. But I found this case to be a nice compromise. I got two of these cases and one had a slightly warped side panel, so it wasn't quite as flush with the case as the other panels. One case had an issue with the front USB 3 plugs. The metal housing inside one of the plugs was bent a little, which would make it a slightly tighter fit when plugging something in.
They feel light and cheap. However, I bought colored replacement thumbscrews anyway to match the case. This is my biggest complaint, although not a deal breaker - I would still buy the case again.
The trays are secured with a thin metal wedge facing the inside of the case see image. The wedge goes under a metal rail in the case. A bit like shoving a doorstop under a door, except imagine that the doorstop is metal and you're scraping the paint off your door every time you shove the doorstop in or pull it out. Likewise, you secure the hard disk tray by banging the wedge under the rail so it sticks there with friction only rubbing the white paint off in the process.
You then secure the top of the tray with a cheap thumbscrew. It's not a huge deal since most people would only remove it a couple times during the lifetime of the case. But it's just poor design. There is an alternative. With this case you can secure a 2. Not my preference makes it awkward to remove the side panel easily , but it's an option if you don't want to use the drive trays, or want to use additional disks.
I swear part of the thumbscrew was brushing against the motherboard when screwing it in. I guess the good thing about these cheap thumbscrews is that they have an outer plastic coating, so it doesn't damage anything.
As mentioned before, I bought replacement thumbscrews, but I couldn't replace this particular screw since my new screws were slightly larger and it wouldn't fit with the motherboard right there.
I removed that particular hard disk tray since I didn't need it, although I left the screw so there wasn't just an empty hole. A number of other reviews have mentioned this, so you just have to be careful when plugging something in.
If you're looking for a white mini-ITX case, definitely consider this one. While there are a couple relatively minor issues, overall this case looks fresh and attractive, and has a smarter layout inside compared to some other cases. There is a black version of this case, but if you're looking at black, you might as well consider the myriad of alternatives from other manufacturers.
This case is cheap in the US, but I wish they would've charged more and refined the internals of the case, rather than cutting corners. I would definitely buy it again though, given that white case options are limited. V1 Cube Verified Purchase. I really like this case. First, it fits my need. I wanted something that would fit into an Ikea "box of open cubes" type shelf unit.
The opening on each cube is 13" x 13" H x W. The Core V1 is under Fits perfectly with enough open space for ventilation. Shoved inside the cube, everything is staying at a nice C at idle. The quality is of good quality. The metal is light but more than sturdy enough to sit on a shelf.
The parts all fit well. The front panel connectors and switches all functioned as expected. The fit and finish are good, and it is an attractive case. Top, bottom and both sides come off with thumb screws. The top and sides are all interchangeable. You can put the windowed panel on top or either side. Thermaltake sells replacement window panels for this case. I wish they sold replacement vented panels. I don't need the window. The easy access made assembly a breeze. There is enough internal space that my mm non-modular PSU worked great.
The excess cables tucked neatly on the side of the PSU, and I could route and tie the cables together to permit good airflow through the case. To improve air flow, I put the windowed panel on one side and installed the two ventilated panels on the top and the other side.
I pushed the windowed side of the case against the cubby hole wall to encourage airflow out the ventilated top and side. I did not install the optional not included 2 x 80 mm fans in the rear of the case. Between the mm front fan included and the fact that my older model PSU draws air through the case and the natural ventilation built into the case itself. I have no heat issues.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. So far, I am not completely satisfied with the quality of this mother board. It arrived with bent pins where the CPU sits. This was because the plastic part came loose and was not inside the locking mechanism. I was able to bend them back no problem. However, the Bluetooth doesn't work at all.
What ever is connected to the Bluetooth must be sitting less than a foot away in order to connect. I had an external Bluetooth adapter which I used with my last which works for now. I also had issues connecting the graphics card at first. It was not being recognized. I had to reseat the card 3 times and then it started working. If I could have waited longer, I would have shipped it back. But everything is working great at the moment.
I will likely look at upgrading this component later, but it is working for me for now. One person found this helpful. It has generous support for 6 SATA ports, so you can build a very nice Coffee Lake based system in a modest size case. As others have reported, when the splash screen appears and the boot device selection menu opened, the screen becomes corrupted and frozen, none of the devices can be selected, you have to juggle the boot priority options around on a separate screen each time to boot from your desired device.
I called tech support, they didn't seem to understand that the EFI firmware is rendering this screen and not the "windows boot loader" even though I am running Linux. They would not replace the MOBO because I purchased it more than 30 days ago so this is now something I have to live with.
However looked at the back of the motherboard Upon product arrival, I noticed 2 gold capacitors were bent inward towards the center of the board which led me to inspect the board more so. I turned the board over to inspect the M. However looked at the back of the motherboard as a whole, there were stress marks across the entire PCB. Not sure if this was due to the transportation during delivery, or if it was manufacture quality control failure.
Product is defective and will need to be replaced putting my customers custom HTPC order on hold. After my final assembly into a small form case, this ITX small footprint can overclock and produce some very strong benchmark numbers. Bios is easy to use and machine assembly is very quick. The board itself is solid, no issues overclocking to 5ghz with my delidded k, temps are great, not BSODS - all in all very happy But my god does ASrock software suck: No desktop app for controlling the fan headers, the RGB app is very basic and the Music setting is broken with no fix online, and the ASrock update utility is dysfunctional and wont properly update the board.
Again, a solid board, but ASrock needs some help. Plenty of options and connections. Overclocking on my ik is really easy. Overall great quality board. I received the wrong model, returned it back. When ASRock works, it's great. Unfortunately I received 2 motherboards with issues 1 dead ram slot, 1 DoA before a motherboard that did work properly. See all 12 reviews.
